Review summary

THE MARINA IS A BEAUTIFUL FANCY SHIP BUT THEY HAVE  MAJOR PROBLEMS.  THE CREW ALLOWED A LOCAL CITIZEN ON BOARD IN  CROATIA, WITH NO HEALTH SCREENING DONE, AND SHE WAS INFECTED WITH RHINO VIRUS.  SHE PASSED OUT WHILE ON BOARD PROMPTING A " MIKE 13 EMERGENCY CALL"   SHE  CONTAMINATED THE ENTIRE SHIP PASSENGERS AND CREW.  WE HAD SO MANY SICK PEOPLE THAT THE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL IN ATLANTA WAS NOTIFIED AND THE SHIP WAS PUT IN QUARINTINE FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE CRUISE.  SHIP SERVICES SHUT DOWN, EVERYONE GLOVED AND SHEETS OF PLASTIC COVERING ALL FOOD SERVICES, WHAT A GREAT LUXURY EXPERIENCE & NO EXPLANATION FROM THE CREW.

GLOVED WAITERS WITH PLASTIC GLOVES AND PLASTIC UTENSILS DO NOT MAKE FOR A LUXURY EXPERIENCE. NOT EVEN A SALT AND PEPPER SHAKER COULD BE USED.

Entertainment

THE SHOWS WERE EMPTY AS THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE SICK YOU DID NOT WANT TO GET INFECTED BY BEING IN A CROWDED THEATER.

Service and Staff

WITH HALF OF THE CREW SICK THE SERVICE WAS GREATLY REDUCED AND THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS NOT GREAT, JUST VERY DISAPPOINTING ALL AROUND.

Ship tip

THE SHIPS PROPELLERS ARE OUT OF BALANCE, YOU ARE THROWN OUT OF BED EVERY TIME THE SHIP STARTS TO MANOUVER. HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS ON ANY OTHER OCEANIA SHIP, IT WAS TERRIBLE.
